U.S. Supreme Court

Monterey v. Jacks, 203 U.S. 360 (1906)

Monterey v. Jacks

No. 27

Argued October 16, 1906

Decided December 3, 1906

203 U.S. 360


In California, pueblo land, which were simply ancillary to the execution of the public trust and in which the pueblo never had an indefeasible proprietary interest, and which were subject to the supreme political dominion of the former Mexican government, became, on the change of government, equally subject to the sovereignty of the State of California through it legislature, and the title to such lands did not pass to the United States. The title of one holding under a deed to pueblo lands from a city in California, ratified by the legislature, sustained as against the city claiming to hold under a subsequent patent from the United States.

139 Cal. 542 affirmed.

The facts are stated in the opinion.
